Fashion King: Episode 20 (Final) Recap

by: Raine

Episode 20 came in at 9.6%. Ratings went up…how is that possible?

AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH! It’s done! It’s done! Hoo-frickin’-ray! *happy dance* *busts open the beer and soju* Who wants?

And about the actual episode: this was a horrible finale. I have the worst feeling in my gut right now. It’s not the content. It’s the delivery. The context…or the lack thereof. I’m not moved. Rather, I’m confused. That’s not a good way to leave your viewer.

Fashion King: Episode 19 Recap

by: Raine

Episode 19 remained stagnant at 9.5%. In the picture above, I imagine Jae-hyuk thinking this: “We can get through two more episodes of this nightmare. *fistpump* And then I’ll get to go visit Raine as she recovers from her bilateral carpel tunnel surgery that she’s having on Friday.” Of course, that isn’t what he’s doing at all, but a girl can dream.

Fashion King: Episode 18 Recap

Episode 18 came in at 9.5%.

This episode tried to highlight the “issues” that were brought up earlier in the drama like Young-gul’s fear of abandonment, Ga-young’s need for acceptance and Jae-hyuk’s daddy issues. But as far as I’m concerned, they were so badly established, that I was left wanting. In order to establish such things, writernim, you need to have coherency and some semblance of a linear plot line.

At least there was two seconds of cute. Sort of. And Yu-ri has really amazing legs. I want them.

Fashion King: Episode 14 Recap

by: Raine

Episode 13 remained at 9.4% while episode 14 increased to 9.9 %. I’m actually happy ’cause this episode did improve! All thanks to Ga-young.

This episode really got to me and so I’m upping the rating on this recap for language. Prepare soap for your eyes. I love Young/Young even though the Young/Hyuk was ridiculously cute this episode.
